    Murder Of A Werewolf (A Brimstone Witch Mystery Book 1) by April Fernsby is a fun murder/witch mystery that involves witches solving a murder of a werewolf without getting killed themselves. A fun romp in a town of Brimstone, a place that they get to by going through their basement door. It is a world within our world. A fun and delightful story full of magic, witty humor, and great imagination. A cozy murder mystery of the supernatural kind!

    A fun read I loved the talking cats, I wish my cats could talk. Was so happy she dumped Alastair, he was a possessive, overbearing control freak. Too bad she didn't turn him into a toad or a snake, that would have been awesome!

    Cassia WInters is a witch, but she has suppressed that side of herself since she was young. Cassia's Gran investigates crimes in Brimstone, but when a tragedy occurs, Cassie is called into investigate. Cassie doesn't believe her gran when she tells her she's a witch, but upon entering Brimstone, her memory comes back bit by bit. This was really good. There were a few plot holes but nothing that took away from the overall feeling of the book. The plot was relatively fast paced and entertaining.

Cassia has blocked all the magic out of her memory, which I didn't really understand how she could have! But things start coming together and you see bits and pieces of her life. I loved the idea of Brimstone, and how you get there, I loved learning about the other magical creatures too. I also adored the cats!!! The cat visiting the funerals!!! Lol. In all, a fun and engaging read. It's a good start to the series and makes me want to listen to more. I enjoyed all the characters and can't wait to see more of them. Kitt Sullivan did a good job. She was easy to listen to and clear. I felt like she needed a few different tones for the male characters though. I also wanted a little more inflection and excitement from her performance. I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

But once she tells her and takes her to the "magical land" she changes her mind and sends her packing saying she can't have anything to do with being a witch or go back to the "magical land." There is no real explanation on this change and it's just weird. Of course Cassia then decides she has to go to the land and solve the murder and be a witch. Then there was her "boyfriend" who is a total jerk until he does his complete 180 as well. No real character depth or motivation behind the characters. It was just a bit too cute and easy - like a children's book.

    This was a fun paranormal cozy mystery. The supernatural town is full of surprises and awesome butterfly messenger. I'm sure there is a lot more magic to unlock. This series is very promising. I look forward to more.

    Murder, She Wrote in a supernatural setting. Very G rated. There were a few characters with bad attitudes, and even the murder... it all just seemed so sanitized. So if you are one of those people who is always sunshine and roses, you might enjoy this book.

I did not expect to be charmed both by the human characters Cassia and Gran but by the two feline familiars Oliver and Stanley. Cassie does not realize that she is a witch. She has buried any memories of the supernatural despite having a fondness for Buffy The Vampire Slayer and other shows of a similar ilk.

I did not expect to be charmed both by the human characters Cassia and Gran but by the two feline familiars Oliver and Stanley. Cassie does not realize that she is a witch. She has buried any memories of the supernatural despite having a fondness for Buffy The Vampire Slayer and other shows of a similar ilk. She is trying to live a normal human life but it is killing both her and her kitty Stanley. It is only when she embraces her inner witch that both of them start to recuperate and return to a zest for life. And when Stanley and his brother Oliver start to talk to her, things ramp up. It seems Gran is the detective for the town of Brimstone, accessed through Gran’s basement. When Gran is assaulted on the job, Cassia and Stanley take on the investigation into the supposed suicide of a human turned werewolf. The cross overs of the two worlds are delightful as are some of the creatures Cassia rediscovers when she returns to Brimstone. It is a good mystery with lots of clues and twists and surprises. I know I will enjoy a return visit to Brimstone as I am sure you will too. I give it five purrs and two paws up

    I enjoyed listening to this book a lot. The world it's based in is well designed and has lots of potential for more books. I really liked the butterfly concept it added to the storyline nicely. The characters are quirky and their behavior is quiet funny. I thought the interaction between species was done well. I'd definitely read more of this series.

I'll start with the positives (and probably end that way too). Definitely a quick read in that the story when it finally started to matter went about fairly quickly. The protagonist didn't spend millions of pages learning how to light a candle with magical words, which is a great thing and there wasn't a bunch of filler as it pertains to plot development. (Most) Everything that occurred in the span of this book was directly related to advancing the plot in some form of fashion. The length of the book also lends to fairly quick character development. In order for anyone to feel anything about the characters, they needed to be immediately repulsive or immediately good. I can only say that really one character in the book swayed me one way or the other and that was the boyfriend. Everyone else was kind of "hohum" and if they died any time in the novel I wouldn't care. Which I think is a downfall for shorter books, but sometimes you sacrifice having memorable cast of characters when you go for the quick plot. Good thing about this little book is that I THOUGHT I had the mystery figured out and there would be a huge blowout of badassery at the end. What with the protagonist coming into her power throughout the book. I literally thought things were going to go down. I was wrong. Which was great. While I do love bone breaker displays of magic, I love it when books don't go the way I have them mapped out. Not to say that the final conflict came out of left field and there is a deus ex machina moment, but it was plausible path that didn't immediately occur to me. Once the story got to the point, it was actually okay. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this review voluntarily.

Oh, Stanley. What a sweetie. From his weird obsession with funerals to his joy at returning to Brimstone (plus his unusually fascination with Luca and his big strong arms), he is such a loyal and loving companion.One dull point was Cassia’s knuckling under with the oily, self serving boyfriend, Alistair. He’s a douche of the highest order, and yet for some unknown reason Cassia bites her tongue and keeps her emotions all bottled up. I wish she had of unleashed some of that pent up anger on the condescending Alistair. And when we got that scene at the end with them, it cuts out before I hope she unloaded on him. Why couldn’t we see that? I was counting on her letting him have it before the end of the story.

The pacing was near perfect, always moving quick, gladly *not* at a breath-stealing sprint. There’s a unique paranormal world semi-merged with the mundane world, humor, mystery, and discovering one’s paranormal abilities—all favorite story elements of mine. There’s some very decent character development too, more than is found in many books of this length. It’s a clean read. This is not Tolkien; I don’t want it to be.

Took hubby to doc and this book had synced up on my phone so I picked up where I'd left off and found that I liked the characters and found myself enjoying the story. I especially appreciate that the heroine developed a backbone and didn't let guys push her around or treat her like a helpless fem fatal. I will be reading more books by this author. flag Like  · see review Oct 13, 2017 Aurora rated it it was amazing I listened to an Audible version of this entertaining cozy mystery. The book is very well read, Gran and Cassia are warm, charming characters I immediately fell in love with the story. The murder mystery is complex enough to keep you involved and the magical village where most of the action is set and it's supernatural inhabitants are interesting and believable.I would recommend this book as a great afternoon's entertainment for anyone who enjoys cozy mysteries with a paranormal flair. flag Like  · see review « previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 next »
